Flipping Your First House Part Two

Flipping Your First House Part Two On this podcast episode I talk about direct mail marketing to motivated sellers. Make sure you listen to the previous podcast (Flipping Your First House – How To Get Started) before you listen to this one, since it follows up on the previous episode. On this podcast I drill down into the details of direct mail results and what the typical results would look like from mailing to a list of 8,000 absentee owners over a period of 8 weeks (mailing 1,000 postcards a week). I broke down the mailing costs and showed a real example of mailing $500 a week for 4 weeks and spending $2,000 before my student got a house that he flipped for a profit of $12,000. I talk about getting out of the trading your time for a paycheck mindset and how the key to generating motivated seller leads is to be marketing. You cannot afford to skip this step – especially if you have a full time job. I also speak about scripts, talking to motivated sellers and knowing what to say. The ultimate goal is to go on an appointment with a motivated seller and to get their house under contract. Once you have a house under contract you have a property to flip. I discuss typical response rates and how on average you will only get 2 seller appointments for every 1,000 postcards mailed. That is why you need to make sure every seller appointment counts. Make sure before you go on a seller appointment you know: 1. the ARV and comparable sales 2. the repair estimate and how much it will cost 3. how much to offer in order to make a profit I also offered a script for you to download which you can get when you attend my webinar on wholesaling webinar (the link is below) If you are brand new to real estate and want to learn more about how to wholesale real estate and flip houses then please register for the free wholesaling real estate training at this link below: FREE WHOLESALING TRAINING https://www.lexlevinrad.com/webinar FIXING AND FLIPPING TRAINING If you want to learn how to fix and flip houses I have a fix and flip training webinar at this link: https://www.lexlevinrad.com/fixandflipwebinar DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THIS PODCAST TO BE NOTIFIED OF UPDATES SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL http://www.youtube.com/lexlevinrad?sub_confirmation=1 CONNECT WITH ME ONLINE http://www.lexlevinrad.com http://www.facebook.com/lexlevinradrealestate http://www.twitter.com/lexlevinrad http://www.instagram.com/lexlevinrad http://www.linkedin.com/in/lexlevinrad http://www.pinterest.com/lexlevinrad https://plus.google.com/+LexLevinradrealestate DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY OF MY BOOK ON WHOLESALING PROPERTIES For more real estate tips about property investment, investing in real estate, and how to start wholesaling, download a FREE copy of my best selling book “Wholesaling Bank Owned Properties” at https://www.lexlevinrad.com

Excellent Content!!!!!

This is a wonderful podcast to listen to with such valuable content. I was very interested to listen to your take on why one should purchase rental property.


Best real estate investor podcast.

Lex gives you real tips with actual names of multiple sites and services to use from the beginner up to advanced. I feel he’s giving away his classes for free on the podcast. Most podcasts stop short of details and give generic advice unless you join there groups.

I’ve been looking to get into the world of real estate investing but everyone I ask gives me answers that makes it all sound way too easy. This podcast gives you the real deal. More please!

Great show for beginners or experts!

As an amateur flipper since I was in my teens, I kind of have gotten pretty good at identifying great opportunities and taking advantage of them. But, Lex dives much deeper and gives actionable tips on how to make sure you are looking at everthing before making any decisions. I'm hooked!

Be Prepared to Learn!

Two words: Information Dense. Sweet Moses. I’ve listened to other real estate investing podcasts but this by far is the most practical, the most hands-on podcast I have heard to date. You can tell that the host, Lex, is very passionate about real estate investing. That passion with his experience translates into an excellent podcast. He shares theory about a topic and then tells a story about his experiences in the real world. That to me is gold!
